As a child, both of my parents have been dedicated field workers. At the age of 12, I also contributed my part to my family's low income and became a field worker. My summer vacations consisted of a 10 hour grape picking shift. From 5am to 3pm. Without my financial contribution, me and my family would simply not have enough money to support ourselves. Since day one, we've been making ends meet. But it's time for a change. I'm currently enrolled in Fresno State University, and am the first person in my entire family to attend college. Fortunatley for me, mathematics seems to be a natural gift of mine. I plan to exceed the expectations of my parents, and strive to accomplish my goals of becoming a Mechanical Engineer.
